Broward County Early Termination of Probation

Early Termination of Probation Lawyer

Florida statutes section 948.04 provides that if a probationer has performed satisfactorily and has not been found in violation of any conditions of probation, the Department of Corrections may recommend early termination of probation to the court. Though you can file a motion for early termination of probation at any time, your best chance is when you have served at least half of the original term and have fulfilled all conditions of probation. Some conditions that will weigh in your favor include maintaining a job, getting an educational degree, and paying all fines.

To apply for early termination of probation in Broward and Fort Lauderdale, your attorney must file a Motion to Terminate Probation or Community Control with the court, as well as sending copies to the State Attorney’s Office and your probation officer. When all paperwork has been filed properly, you will be scheduled for a hearing date. At the hearing to terminate probation, you and/or your attorney will need to demonstrate to the court why you should be granted early termination of probation.

It is in your best interests to seek out a qualified Fort Lauderdale criminal defense attorney when filing this motion, because the prosecution may object to early termination and the court is not obligated to grant your petition. An attorney can also help complete and file all the paperwork necessary, as well as speak on your behalf at the hearing to terminate probation.

If your petition for early termination is granted you may also be eligible for records sealing after your probation has been terminated (records sealing is not available unless your probation has been terminated).

  • Consulted with Doug on a speeding ticket which I really didn't deserve, in my opinion...
    Doug is great! He is professional, fair and follows through. He took care of my case quickly and thoroughly. I was at ease throughout the entire process. My case was dismissed, no points, no traffic school and his fee was very reasonable!
    ★★★★★
